27 young argentines will study in UK with a Chevening Scholarship

The British Ambassador, Dr John Freeman, offered a farewell reception at his Residence before their departure.

During the farewell, the Ambassador pointed out that the scholarship was “not all about studying, but also about taking the opportunity to travel and meet new people”. Alumni from previous years gave the new scholars an opportunity to ask questions and exchange suggestions and expectations on the scholarship experience.
